CIMIP is served by two boards: The CIMIP Research Steering Committee and the Board of Advisors of the Economic Crime Institute of Utica College (ECI).

The Research Steering Committee is instrumental in setting the research agenda, prioritizing projects, obtaining subject matter experts to conduct research, and procuring funding. It consists of representatives from each of the Center’s stakeholder organizations.

The ECI Board of Advisors provides guidance on research needs, potential stakeholders and supporters, subject matter experts, and funding sources.
